Back to the original topic.

Here are six words sure to ruin Jennifer Lopez's day: Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Ben Affleck. Yup, the scruffy Oscar winner has quietly taken a pregnant Jennifer Garner as his lawfully wedded wife, their reps have announced.

According to Us Weekly, the low-key lovebirds, who have been dating for a little less than a year and are expecting their little Ben-bino in the fall, tied the knot on Wednesday at the swanky, celebrity-friendly Parrot Cay resort in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Garner and Affleck exchanged vows on a beach at sunset, says the National Enquirer, which has pics purportedly showing the "Alias" star arriving on the island with her small-screen dad, Victor Garber.

No word on whether Ben's best bud Matt Damon was there to witness him kiss his closely held single status goodbye, or whether he attended the bachelor party Us says was thrown for Affleck Friday night (Garner was reportedly finishing up work on the romantic comedy "Catch and Release" in Vancouver.)

"Access Hollywood" reports Jen donned a cream, empire-waist gown with a "sea-colored sash" for the ceremony, adding that the couple spent their first night as husband and wife in the Parrot Cay pad of Affleck's "Armageddon" co-star, Bruce Willis.

They plan to depart the tropical paradise on Thursday or Friday and may head to Jen's family home in West Virginia to celebrate their union with her nearest and dearest, according to the Enquirer.

And now that Garner and Affleck have made things official, their typically comment-free reps have finally unbuttoned their lips, not only confirming the twosome have indeed said "I do" but admitting that Garner, whose swelling belly has been documented in countless paparazzi pics, has a bun in the oven.

"They're married and they're expecting their first child," the stars' respective publicists said in a statement (via People).

Ben, 32, is said to have slipped a diamond-crammed Harry Winston eternity band on Jen's finger as she celebrated her 33rd birthday in April.

This is the first time Affleck has made it to the altar. He backed out of his lavish September 2003 nuptials to Lopez after allegedly coming down with a severe case of frozen tootsies. The media beast known as Bennifer went belly-up four months later (J. Lo married Marc Anthony in June 2004). Garner split from "Felicity" star Scott Foley in 2003 after two and a half years of marriage.

Meanwhile, members of the privacy-craving couple's inner circle are apparently tattling to the media about whether they'll soon be awash in pink or blue.

According to the Insider, Ben and Jen will welcome a bouncing baby -- wait for it -- girl.

"They are thrilled," a mole tells the newsmag. "They just heard, but they are only telling close friends."

Meanwhile, Garner picked up a Father's Day gift for Affleck when they were in New York a few weeks back, says the Insider. No word on what she selected, but here's hoping it was a baby-name book devoid of any monikers that will get their kid beat up by Apple, Hazel or Phinnaeus.

I understand where you're coming from. Trust me, we try our best to monitor PLEBA and keep things from getting too out of hand. If you ever see something at PLEBA that you feel is out of line, feel free to use the function to report a post. Same goes for any posts in any 'sexiest men' threads.

I personally feel the mods are very unbiased (though some could say I'm biased ), but I realize we can look hypocritical at times without it being our fault...it's just hard for us to catch everything. That's when members reporting posts becomes very helpful.

Now...this thread can either go back on topic and remain open, or it can continue with the personal attacks (that's not a reference to your post either, Chizip...just to be clear!) and be closed.

So now it's going to be tit-for-tat (no pun intended ) w/ people monitoring what is posted in PLEBA as some sort of "back up" for this and their arguments? This is all getting very weird..to be fair, I read judgments on this forum all the time about people who post in PLEBA-in other forums, in journals, or in PLEBA itself. So there are plenty of judgments about people there to go around. Not just judgments either-outright insults.

I never made any judgments about that "hot chick" thread or about anyone posting in it..the whole situation became too scary for me. Whatever the pictures that were posted in that thread, reading through that PLEBA thread it appears to me 95 percent (or more) of those pictures are fully clothed. Maybe someone could do a statistical analysis and compare

I just happen to find this campaign against U2NYC a tad bit hypocritical. Don't get me wrong, I don't agree with everything he says or posts, hell I don't even look in the Sexiest Women thread, but I don't really think he is the monster some people are trying to make him out to be.

Sure the sexiest women thread isnt the classiest thing in the world, but how come the morality police aren't over in Pleba posting some of these same comments in the sexiest men thread?

Or maybe we should just not instantly judge people who we really don't know at all. Alright, I really shouldnt hit submit right now, but what the hell.
I agree. I don't believe the sexiest women thread undermines women. Nor do I believe PLEBA degrades men. And there are naked, and near naked pics in PLEBA - I'm usually the one posting them. lol. The body is a beautiful thing. I enjoy admiring bods - male and female. I have seen federally confiscated porn mags. Those pics objectifies women (and men). Really gross. The pics in the sexiest woman/man/PLEBA are beautiful

Apologies BC, this convo was had whilst I slept. Im off frock pic hunting now

Pax, wow that's a very personal remark. And you have no way of knowing if his wife would mind.
Lots of women would not mind, lots would. Everyone's different.

I agree with Chizips line of thinking.
PLEBA is just as "bad". There are even married women there and girls that are on the verge of getting married that have no problem drooling over Bono, flirting with other Interferencers and being quite graphic at that.

It doesn't bother me in the slightest, so I don't "report" those posts, to each his/her own, I'm just stating this to try to make you see that it goes both ways.

I was giving some thought to this remark and I guess that is must come from the fact that Pax's relationship is completely public and she expresses everything she feels with her boyfriend in this forum. As such, she feels that she has the right to talk and have an opinion about other relationships she does not know anything about.

Well, my marriage is not the same way. Contrary to her, I do have a completely separate personal life, and my wife is perfectly fine with this.

Contrary to her? Why do people continually on this forum, attempt to make psychological evaluations of other's relationships? As a rather common sense guess, I'd assume we only see a small fraction of even the most public relationship on here. I think I disagree with everyone on that note.

I do agree with the comparisons to PLEBA though. Goose and gander syndrome and all. I dont have a problem with anything beyond revolting fanfic and all that garbage, but that's been discussed ad nauseum and subsequently dealt with. So my vote is keep the pictures. Knock yourselves out. Just cease with the constant calling into question of other's relationships, friendships, and associations. This forum is bad for it.

Well, once people start making psychological evaluations about me, I am afraid that gives me the same right.

Long live the Hot Chicks thread (and PLEBA as well, for the same reason).

This time of year, sunset comes to the Parrot Cay resort in the Caribbean about 7:30 p.m. It's an enchanted moment, as a hush falls over the tiny, secluded island in the Turks and Caicos chain and the loudest sound to be heard is that of waves slapping against white coral sand. It was in this intensely romantic twilight moment that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck chose to exchange wedding vows on the beach on June 29.

ROMANCE ON THE BEACH
And Jen, four-months pregnant with Ben's baby and wearing a generously cut white Empire-waisted wedding dress with a green sash, couldn't have looked lovelier — or happier, while Ben looked thin and trim in a cream-colored suit. It appears that Jen's old friend — and TV dad — Victor Garber officiated at the simple nondenominational ceremony. Afterwards, a source says Jen leaped into her new husband's arms, hugging and kissing him before they headed back up the beach to a small reception at Bruce Willis' luxurious villa (he had loaned it to old friend and Armageddon co-star Ben), where they and their guests celebrated with champagne and cake.

An eyewitness told Star that the couple appeared ecstatic. "Ben and Jen looked like they were in total bliss. They were bathed in golden sunlight, the sunset was absolutely perfect and it was a very beautiful scene. Jen had a huge smile on her face, and Ben seemed to be cradling her — he was very protective of her. There was a lot of love between them." Their low-key surprise wedding — a solitary friend, holding a single white calla lily, and a photographer accompanied the couple and Garber onto the beach, and just a few select friends watched from nearby — was the culmination of months of rumors and speculation.
